Synopsis:
Philip (Jamie Paul) is convinced he's fallen prey to a malevolent entity which, following his sister's death, forces him to live imprisoned in his home, surrounded by Catholic icons to ward off increasing paranormal incidents. Comforted by the spiritual guidance of local priest, Father Andrew (David Bailie), Philip brings his lover, Catherine (Sonya Cullingford), to stay, but she soon falls victim to a demonic possession, resulting in a failed attempt at exorcism. Alone again, Philip finds himself drawn by the charms of his new neighbour, Sonia (Miriam Galanti), but nothing, not even salvation, is really as it seems.
'In the Trap' is a chillingly claustrophobic take on demonic possession and the nature of faith itself.

A horror sunk by the leading character ... - In the Trap review by NP

Spoiler Alert
08/12/2021

Featuring the wettest, most simpering leading character I have ever seen. Perpetually crying and whining, Philip does not inspire much in the way of empathy. When not blubbing, he spends a lot of the film delicately nibbling at various meals that are made for him. Sadly, as the film goes on, he only becomes more irritating, deeply so, and that hurts the film throughout.

His girlfriend, far more resolute and personable, is also the preferred meal for the resident demon. Admittedly, Philip goes through the wringer - such is the nature of horror films - but at the end, I couldn't warm to him, and didn't really understand what I'd just watched.

Nice to see veteran actor David Bailie as Father Andrew though, in one of his final roles. My score is 4 out of 10.
